Pagosa Weather is now the “CoCoRaHS Coordinator” for Archuleta County and is also a “Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador”.
We welcomed Hillary Fredrickson, Suanne Mclellan, Frank Snyder, and Jerry Kmack as new CoCoRaHS weather observers in the last month!!! Huge thanks to these folks who will be adding their data every day to the database and help hydrologists as they make key decisions during the drought. Thank you so much, Hillary, Suanne, Frank, and Jerry for your efforts to help us out!
Special thanks to Dana, a CoCoRaHS observer who reached out to us with questions regarding her reports. We’re now getting some very valuable data from a data sparse area. Thank you, Dana!
Special Thanks to all the businesses that have stepped forward to sponsor our weather contests. They are a lot of fun!
The winner of the Choke Cherry Tree gift basket was Roxanna Wise who had a guess of May 14th 1:40 a.m for the last hard freeze. The last hard freeze occurred the 13th of May at 0620L with a temperature of 25 degrees. Though colder temperatures occurred in other locations around the county after that, May 13th was the latest occurrence of 28 degrees or colder at Stevens Field. Again, special thanks to Jenelle, Patty, and the entire Choke Cherry Tree team for sponsoring this contest and to everyone that participated.
